The Lovepedal Kalamazoo is the newest creation from one of the most acclaimed boutique manufacturers in the industry. If you’ve been following what Lovepedal has done over the years, then the Lovepedal Kalamazoo will be a welcome addition to your pedal board. This steers overdrive in a new direction. Of course, since it is hand built by Lovepedal with high quality components, there is a warmth and transparency that sets it heads and shoulders above the hordes of boutique overdrive pedals. The Lovepedal Kalamazoo is unique in that is has two tone controls that will allow you to shape your overdrive to the specifics of your guitar and rig. The Level knob controls the amount of signal and the Drive knob controls the level of overdrive. This super smooth overdrive allows you to have controllable highs, so no more trebly fizz or unwanted icepick treble. Just smooth and sweet singing highs. The Glass knob allows you to increase treble without cutting bass, and allows you also to tune your drive’s tone to different amplifiers. The Tone knob allows you to soften the treble content. This effectively creates a tone control in series with a treble boost, which provides a sonic presence that will simply knock you out.
